Sharon Springs and the Beekman Boys!
Last weekend we went upstate for a little break from the day to day. It was the weekend of the Second Annual Sharon Springs Harvest Festival started by the Fabulous Beekman Boys last year. As I mentioned the other day, I've become a bit of a fan of the show. I heard about the festival last year but wasn't able to make it because of a conflict. This year I made a point of getting there. It was seriously crowded, I haven't seen that many people in all the times I've been to Sharon Springs --- combined! Like a dork, I waited on line to get a photo with Brent (above) but Josh wasn't there yet. By the time he did get there the line was twice as long and I wasn't ready to wait on it again. (That's Josh in the orange shirt on the porch)
In addition to autographs and photos, there were tons of vendors selling produce, jams, crafts and all sorts of goodies. We bought a jar of spiced pear jam (yum!), some garlic for roasting and some yummy white bean veggie chili in a bread bowl for lunch. There was a line to get into their shop, and I had enough of lines for the day, so I figured I can get something there next time I'm up there.
After we left Sharon Springs, we took a slight detour to try to find the farm. It was just a few miles away and is one of the most beautiful farms I've ever seen. I couldn't get a good shot of the front of the house since there are a number of big old trees, but it is quite a house for it's era. Much fancier than my parents place.
That's all for now. I have some photos from a kite festival in Cherry Valley and apple picking at the Sharon Orchards that I'll post a little later.
